Editing for Citations and Structure 1. Switch computers with a peer. 2. Using track changes, you will edit their paper for citations and structure. Use the cheat sheet given to you to check the following: • All quotes have EXPLANATIONS after them. • All quotes are INTRODUCED. • Short quotes are “cited appropriately” (Harvey). • Long quotes are cited appropriately. (Harvey) • The paper has balanced paragraphs – there are about 3-4 paragraphs per page and they are about the same size.
